HOORC at Water Symposium
The Sixth WARFSA/ WaterNet Symposium, in collaboration with the University of Swaziland, was held at Ezulwini in Swaziland from 2 – 4 November, 2005 on the theme, ‘Water for sustainable socio-economic development, good health for all and gender equity’. We hear that HOORC Senior Research Fellow Barbara Ngwenya won the best poster presentation and that HOORC associate Phemo Kgomotso was one of three winners of the 'best young scientist' award for her paper on water governance in Ngamiland. WaterNet -- a regional network of university departments and research and training institutes specialising in water-- holds the annual Water Symposia, jointly organised with the Water Research Fund of Southern Africa (WARFSA), as a platform for water professionals in Southern Africa to discuss advances in research and education related to integrated water resources management.
